How do you figure that when the standard 07's are going for $15K and the S version at $20K??? Do you somehow think Ducati will price their up coming R version (historically their "top of the line" model) of the 1098 for somewhere between their standard model and their S model? I think it’s safe to say the R version will at the least cost more than the S model, unless Ducati decides to lower the prices for the 2008 model year, which as far as I’ve heard won’t be happening….

Just depends if Ducati decides to just have a 1098R with the bigger displacement engine or have a 1098R with bigger engine, full termi and ohlins kit. Depending on the set up sure prices would vary immensely.

Only thing for sure is by next weekend, it would be official that Ducati would be making a 1098R with the extra 100cc engine and ready to race in the 2008 WSB season.

There really isnt a need for an official press release, its really no new news. Did you for a second think Ducati wouldn't come out with an R version of the 1098? It was just a matter of time.

As for the price increase, if my memory serves me correct, the 999R went for around $30K, the 999S was around $23, and the base 999 was around $18K. So taking historical numbers into consideration, I think it's safe to say, the 1098R will be priced right around $30K.

I think we can safely assume that the R will be no less equipped than the current S and will most likely be north of the TC in both equipment and price. . . otherwise why would anyone buy a base or S? My guess is $30k minimum for the R.

Traditionally the R always gets the next upcoming models engine which means that in a year or two the base superbike model will come out with the 1198 engine. This bike may be the affordable prices you mention but there's no way that the R will be cheap. If you consider the differences between a 999S and 999R The R will most like be an S model with the larger capacity engine and a few carbon fibre parts. I've also heard news that the single sided swingarm will be replaced with a two sided unit.

Yea I was talking about the base 1199cc which they will still probably call the 1098. The 1098R with full ohlins suspension and termi as I mentioned earlier would obviously be priced higher. I'm just not sure if Ducati will keep producing the 1098cc engine for the 2008 model. This 1200cc rule change for WSB may have determined what engine Ducati will continue to manufactur for 2008.

So, far Ducati mentioned that they will add the 1098R model simply because the R will be equipped with either an 1198 or 1199cc engine. I think it will be a banner year for Ducati in 2008 when they have both the 848 and the 1098R available for sale.

I'm pretty sure the 1098cc engine ( its actually 1099cc ) will be around for another year or so but will eventually be replaced by a 1200 engine across the whole board, Base, S and R.

It doesn't really faze me cause on the street the 1099cc engine is more than enough if not too much anyway- to be honest if the 848 was available at the same time as the 1098 I would have bought that over the 1098 and pocketed the change. It's probably a whole new story for those that go to a track and are chasing the best lap times possible and are willing to pay extra for the quarter of a second a lap advantage that a 100cc increase might give.

The R has been and will continue to be a homologation bike. Minimum numbers built to meet the FIM regs, maxed out with all the race bits. That means $$$$$$$.

I wont be so minimum this year- new rules state you need to build 1000 units for sale whereas it used to 100 I think.

Low production runs + high demand = high price

.... unless the Ducati marketers are brain dead, they will pitch it at a premium price.

I agree. Too rich for my blood. Unless I am racing, the extra displacement would be good, but I'll be worrying about crashing a $30K bike.
